Can I run Bamboo jobs in parallel?

I have a plan that checks out code, compiles and creates executables in the first stage. In the second stage there are two jobs, each containing a test run and post-processing tasks. My understanding was that jobs can run in parallel. There are enough resources on the remote agent to support that, but jobs are always executed sequentially.

Is there a way to speed up testing by executing jobs on the same plan in parallel?

Jobs are executed in parallel. One agent can run one job in a time. To achieve goal of parallel job execution you need more than one agent

if you talk about example scenario and multijob Stage 2 - yes, there're 3 agents

Use stages.

Stages execute sequentially within a plan by definition.
